With its outstanding performance and tracking speed, discriminative correlation filters (DCF) have gained much attention in visual object tracking, where time-consuming correlation operations can be efficiently computed utilizing the discrete Fourier transform (DFT) with symmetric properties. Nevertheless, the inherent issues of boundary effects and filter degradation, as well as occlusion and background clutter, degrade the tracking performance. In this work, we proposed an augmented memory

Based on the background-aware correlation filter (BACF), we introduced adaptive spatial regularity to mitigate the boundary effect. Several historical views and the current view are exploited to train the model together as a way to reinforce the memory. Furthermore, aberrance repression regularization was introduced to suppress response anomalies due to occlusion and deformation, while adopting the dynamic updating strategy to reduce the impact of anomalies on the appearance model. Finally, extensive experimental results over four well-known tracking benchmarks indicate that the proposed AMRCF tracker achieved comparable tracking performance to most state-of-the-art (SOTA) trackers.
